85% usage seems a bit high if you're NOT using any programs.
next time you boot up your puter, hit control-alt-delete.
that will bring up your task manager.
click on your Processes tab and look and see what is "hogging" up your system.
if it's still using up that much when it's doing nothing, then that's a problem.
have you installed any new programs or hardware lately?
sometimes it could be spyware...you might want to try to dl Ad-Aware SE and get rid of some of the nasties off your puter.
but really, 512mb is enough (now) for most games out there, but adding a bit more could really help.
since i don't know your mobo, i can't tell you how much room you have for upgrades.
but, if you're running a 2.8 P4, i'll bet you definately can add another 512mb stick of RAM.....how many memory slots do you have?
home edition, and you will find out oh so much things about your system.
then tell us what you have!
